No, I didn't pick the one shown below. I learned a long time ago to look for a tan base beneath the netting.
I saw cantaloupes were 33 cents a pound last week. They were hard as rocks but I very much wanted some different fruit for a change and bought one, assuming it would ripen.
Well, my hope didn't come true. It wasn't because of anything I did,
it happened before it was mine.
My theory is, it was picked way too early because when I cut it open, the center was much darker than the outer flesh and had never softened. It had no flavor. The difference between that cantaloupe being good or bad was what happened before I got it. It was out of my control until it wasn't.
Now, your quit, your quit, is an entirely different animal.
You control it from the beginning. Don't say you don't, YOU DO!
No one else is going to be responsible for your quit so, there are no excuses. There is no one else to blame.
No One And No Thing Makes You Smoke But You!
Give It Time To Ripen. You Won't Regret It.
